Grey Seal (Halichoerus grypus) - Donna Nook - Lincolnshire - England

It was a great privilege to get such an up close look at an animal that spends most of its life out to sea. For just a few weeks in late fall, pregnant females come ashore by the thousands in Donna Nook. Here they will give birth, fatten their newborn pups with milk, mate again, and head back out to sea. I was fortunate enough this day to see five seals give birth right in front of me. Mother and pup must establish a bond immediately or the pup will be abandoned. This particular pup is a couple of weeks old and and has a silky white coat of dense fur to get it through it's first weeks of life. Soon it will shed its fur for an adult coat and will set out to sea to fend for itself.

Metal Print - Ready to Hang

Metal Print - Ready to Hang

With metal prints the brilliant surface offers a richness of color that makes viewers take notice.  But they also solve the "problem" of framing. Traditional mounting, matting, and framing can be a time consuming and expensive process. Not so with Metal Prints, the metal surface is naturally smooth and rigid, and with a hanger attached to the back, they are ready to hang right out of the box. This is a great choice for a ready to hang contemporary piece of wall art at a more econonimal price.

Canvas Gallery Wrap - Ready to Hang

Canvas Gallery Wrap - Ready to Hang

Canvas Gallery Wraps offer a superb way to display your photographs. What makes canvas wraps so popular is that they eliminate the need (and cost) of framing. Your Canvas Wrap is ready to hang on your wall, right out of the box. Once you see your Canvas Wrap, you'll understand why these are one of the most popular trends in decor and display. Canvas wraps are also a great option if you have a room that received a lot of glare. The canvas won't reflect the light like a traditional glass or acrylic frame will.
